Pings, Again

Some blogs seem to be having trouble pinging - there are no errors, but they aren't actually showing as "updated" in BlogRolls either. I'm not really sure what is going on, so if anyone happens to have suggestions, I'm all ears.

I know it is happening on the main Wordherder blog, as well as with the new one: Raining Cats and Dogma.

EDIT: Ok, I think I might know. Under Weblog Config/Preferences, make sure that "Notify the following sites when I update my blog" has checkmarks next to both "blo.gs" and "weblogs.com". Now, even if they do, Save, then Rebuild.

I just did that for Dogma, and it seems to have worked. Hopefully it really is just that easy.

New Herder

Welcome to a new Herder - Raining Cats and Dogma. Nothing there quite yet, but we expect some good herding shortly. Yee haw.

As per usual wordherder tradition (sure, we have some of those... according to whim), I'll let the author introduce him/her -self...

The Pings for all wordherders have been set to timeout at 45 seconds rather than the default 15, so hopefully that will help with the issues we have been having.

Meanwhile, I see that several people have updated their blogs, including 1000 words, george williams, and dave. Don't rely only on blogroller folks - sometimes it's just a big fibber!

Meanwhile, palms gets the longest running without a post award. Tsk. But don't be to hard on palms - the author has been swamped.
